Reseña del editor:

J.R.R. Tolkien is perhaps best known for "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings", but it is in "The Silmarillion" that the true-depth of Tolkien's Middle-earth can be understood. "The Silmarillion" was written before, during and after "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings". A collection of stories, it provides information alluded to in Tolkien's better known works and, in doing so, turns "The Lord of the Rings" into much more than a sequel to "The Hobbit", making it instead a continuation of the mythology of Middle-earth. Verlyn Flieger's expanded and updated edition of "Splintered Light", a study of Tolkien's fiction first published in 1983, examines "The Silmarillion" and "The Lord of the Rings" in light of Owen Barfield's linguistic theory of the fragmentation of meaning. Flieger demonstrates Tolkien's use of Barfield's concept throughout his fiction, showing how his central image of primary light splintered and refracted acts as a metaphor for the languages, peoples and history of Middle-earth.

Descripción Kent State University Press November 2002, 2002. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. The Silmarillion is the silent backdrop of the epic story told in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. This deep, imaginative mythology is in a sense the cradle, the molten gold from which the popular books were forged. Though its account of the creation and history of Middle Earth informs Tolkien's better-known plots and characters, The Silmarillion is admittedly the most difficult of his books to understand. Published posthumously and never 'polished' into a single storyline, it remains obscure and inaccessible for most readers. However, a few excellent critics have attempted to throw open a window into this palace of imagination. Verlyn Flieger is one of the best of these. In her book Splintered Light, Tolkien's fiction is examined 'in light of Owen Barfield's linguistic theory of the fragmentation of meaning.showing how [Tolkien's] central image of primary light splintered and refracted acts as a metaphor for the languages, peoples and history of Middle-earth.' Flieger sees Middle Earth not as a fantastic escape from this world, but as a faithful literary reflection of it. By giving us a new myth after the ancient ones have been discarded, Tolkien shows how we can best live 'in the time that is given to us.' 196 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 20100707174834
